Cover FX Custom Cover Drops is THE BEST makeup product of 2015. It. Covers. Up. Everything. Political scandals. Water damage on the carpet. Black money. Cracks on the walls. My cystic acne.
It also lets you control the shade, finish and coverage. I have to thank Courtney of Phyrra.net, whose review swayed me into buying this.
Scroll down for my review of the Cover FX Custom Cover Drops.
The Cover Drops come in a 15ml glass bottle with a dropper. Just 15ml, you ask? That is pretty much equivalent to 50ml of a regular, full-coverage foundation. The product was less thick than what I had expected. Also, it always tends to overflow a bit on the rim of the bottle.
I tried mixing this with the lightweight Caudalie Vinosource Moisturising Sorbet but it did not make sense to apply moisturiser above primer. It depends on your skin type. Dry skin? Mix with a richer moisturiser.
I prefer mixing this with a mattifying primer and skipping a layer on my already acne-prone face. It goes very well with silicone primers (I have used it with Porefessional, Dr Brandt Pores No More, Innisfree No Sebum, Bourjois Flower Perfection) as well as more liquid formulae (Monu Illuminating Face Primer, Bourjois Happy Light Matte). It can also be mixed with moisturisers, sunscreens, sheerer foundations, skin serum... whatever floats your boat, really. I know someone who mixes it with face mist. It works!
This is roughly one drop of Cover FX Custom Cover Drops (from the dropper) and a quick squeeze of Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Primer. Even so, this is MORE than what I need to cover my face.
The finish depends on what you use for mixing - in my case, matte - and coverage is full. Staying power is ALL day and it does not cake, flake, crease, settle into pores or be eaten up by my oily skin. Flawless. Even I have nothing to gripe about.
I am not brave enough for a "before" photograph, and don't want you to vomit for the next week or so - suffice it to say I have the worst skin ever. For full breakdown of the makeup I am wearing, please click here.
I may be very small fry, but for me, Cover FX Custom Cover Drops is the beauty product of 2015. The innovation of the year, that lets you control shade, finish and coverage. The best foundation for my acne-riddled, acne-prone, oily skin. There is isn't one thing I want to change about this.
This has more coverage and staying power than any other foundation I have tried (and I have tried a LOT), even when mixed with moisturiser. When mixed with primer, it imbibes the qualities of the primer, upping the staying power. If you have been dithering, or worry about caking, don't! This is it. The perfect foundation.
Will I repurchase? You bet anything! This, Wayne Goss brushes, Artis brushes and more Beautyblenders and Clarisonic Cashmere Luxe brush heads are at the top of my 2016 must-buy list.
Costs $44 for a bottle that can easily last as much as your average 50ml foundation (since you need only a drop). Buy it here - free worldwide shipping available.
